Bending wood

I’ve made a number of bent-wood projects on the show. The largest was this quilt rack which we still use. It’s a lot easier than you might imagine. Mostly, you just need a method for cutting very thin strips of wood. The thinner they are, the more you can bend them. One advantage this bent-lamination technique has over steam-bending is that there is no “spring back”. Once the glue is dry, the piece holds it shape.

Obviously, you will need to tailor this to fit the size and shape of whatever razor you use, but this should help get you started. It doesn’t take much wood, so don’t worry if your first attempt isn’t perfect…make another one!
